Reaching together... stand firm in your faith, be courageous and strong - 1 Corinthians 16:13




Lilac level books are books that tell a story through pictures alone. They help children to develop speaking and listening skills through creating and telling stories.


How to support your child reading Lilac level books


Your child is just beginning to discover the excitement of books. Although these books have no words, they are an important introduction to reading. Please encourage your child to:

  • Look at the pages in order, and talk about what is happening on the left hand page before the right hand page.
  • Talk about what is happening on each page, rather than just talking about what they see in each picture.
  • Tell you who or what the book is about.
